In conclusion, India's projection of power in the Middle East demands serious attention. While India may differ from the US and Israel on certain issues, it is unlikely to undermine Washington's interests like Beijing and Moscow have. India's ascent as a major player offers a new and captivating chapter in the region's geopolitical landscape.
